For our third installment of the street style highlights for NYFW SS17, we're zooming in on the best arm candy of the day—by that, we obviously mean the fashion kind, and not the passion types. Although typically an accompaniment to the ensemble, bags have long moved past their function for utility to become the spotlight-grabbing accessory they are today. Here a few of the statement bags that stole the limelight on day three.

Echoing the focus on details, curated below is a gallery of looks where we beseech you to take a closer look at how textural elements can elevate a garment. Things that caught our eye include artistically disheveled and frayed edges, two toned pleats, and ruffles of various sizes. They do say that God is in the details.
